Four paws up to our furry canines and felines for wagging and purring your way right into forever homes. Daisy, the min-pin mix is now known as Miss Moneypenny and has the unconditional love of her humans. Lil Stevie, our partially blind rescue from Anza has found her way into her foster’s heart to make this her forever home. Always love to you Stevie. Jake, the abandoned Anatolian shepherd has turned a trial into a forever. Bennie, the blue-nosed American Staffordshire is now snuggled between the arms of his two new humans. And Hot Coco, our only black kitten is in the care of a very responsible young man.

Reunited this week were Luna and Winksee, terrier and ridgeback, who took a little stroll and couldn’t find their way back home.


A yellow lab was found wandering around in a vineyard, and named Baily. What else can you do with her but bring her home and love her as yellow labs should be loved?


And this female 3-year-old sweetheart loves to walk or run on the leash, give hugs, literally, and play ball. A typical all around great lab just deserves to have the best. Can you find room in your heart and home? Kid friendly, mother approved.

Elsie and Tawny

It’s the burrito babies! Sisters Elsie and Tawny are young deerhead Chihuahuas found abandoned. Tearfully, they watched their humans simply walk away. Thank you to the compassionate human that helped them find their safe home at ARF. They would love to be adopted together.


Betty Boop

Betty Boop is a young chug, pug-Chihuahua mix. She comes with her own faux fur wardrobe and a pink crate. Yep, it’s pink. Small enough for your arm or a purse, she wants to be near you through your daily ventures and sleep close in the night. An absolute dream on the leash, potty trained, and not vocal. If you seem to be missing that special someone, Betty could be it. She is good with other dogs, not the feline crowd.
